The Rising Tsunami of the Police State
March 19, 2012
Saturday night, March 17. Dateline 8 PM PDT. I received an email from a reader alerting me to the Executive Order — National Defense Resources Preparedness signed by President Obama on March 16. To tell the truth, I thought it was a hoax. Other than The Examiner, I could find no reference to the EO anywhere but on the official White House Press release site.
So what to do? I had already completed the Sunday Buzz but wait, I just had to include this bit of breaking news. And so, for the next twenty four hours, like many of you, I sought to make sense of the fact that there has been no main stream coverage of this event.
I do not consider myself an advocate of conspiracies. But as I consider this wholesale cannibalization of our freedom and of the Constitution, I begin to wonder whether there is some grand plan. Perhaps there is some master puppeteer poised to pull our strings when and if the rise to elitism reaches the pinnacle.
So with much personal angst, I have begun to believe that the rank and file citizens of the United States of America are being herded down the path to a Police State. Or, better put, will soon be running from the rising tsunami of the police state.
What is a Police State?
According to Wikipedia:
A police state is one in which the government exercises rigid and repressive controls over the social, economic and political life of the population. A police state typically exhibits elements of totalitarianism and social control, and there is usually little or no distinction between the law and the exercise of political power by the executive.
The inhabitants of a police state experience restrictions on their mobility, and on their freedom to express or communicate political or other views, which are subject to police monitoring or enforcement. Political control may be exerted by means of a secret police force which operates outside the boundaries normally imposed by a constitutional state.
